37.5 cL bottle. Pours muddy red with a diminished pink head. Mild fruity, sharp sulphoris and slight woody aroma. Starts sour citric before a soft fruity cherry flavour appears with a slight sweetness and takes the flavour back into an acidic then citric phase. Ends citric with a mild acidity, no fruity flavours left.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
6.5%, bottled (2005 vintage). Sampled at Helsinki Beer Festival (Thanks to Tranquillity & his girlfriend for this one!). Hazy murky dark red colour with red/pink head, which goes away fast. Aroma is cherries, some vinegar and even other red berries. Flavour is quite the same. Richer than many other Krieks I have had. Excellent thing!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2005 (Bottle 37,5 cl) The amazing Café Plan B in Copenhagen started importing several Belgian lambic-beers. I got to sneak a peak into their excellent beer-cellar and found a.o. this one from "De Cam". Very rose color. Even the head, which is very fizzy due to the high pressure in the bottle. Classic and completely un-sweetened "Kriek" with the traditional sensation of vinegar. The cherries add more color than aroma. The flavor almost disappears in the sourness. 020704

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Cloudy bright red. with small pink head. Ripe cherries struggle to overpower grassy hops in th earoma. Initial syrupy cherry sweetness is turned into burning citric acidity. Clean mouthfeel. Well crafted, but lacks the sparkling, lively mouthfeel of the top examples of the style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
6th March 2010. Cloudy strawberry coloured beer. Dry palate. Sharp lemony sourness, burns on the way down. Too sour for me. A Girardin Black Label I can understand and enjoy - this is just lemon juice to me!
